Recently, iris recognition systems have gained increased attention especially in non-cooperative environments. One of the crucial steps in the iris recognition system is the iris segmentation because it significantly affects the accuracy of the feature extraction and iris matching steps. In this paper, a new algorithm is being proposed to segment the iris images captured in visible wavelength under unconstrained environment. The proposed algorithm uses the various types of filters to smooth the iris image. The proposed algorithm reduces the error percentage even in the presence of noise include iris obstruction and specular reflection.
